In Memoriam

Not long ago, Harding University’s  Chi Sigma Alpha had a reunion retreat.  Invitations were sent far and wide for any member of Chi Sigma Alpha to come back and enjoy fun and fellowship with all of their friends from their college club days.  It was a good time had by all and many guys from different club generations were able to meet other members for the first time. 

One of the guys that I was lucky enough to meet was Trey Harp.  Trey, as your could tell right away was one of these people who just loved life.  The world was a playground or a format for jokes and good times.  Basically he is the kind of guy that I want to be in ten years.  We had a lot of fun those couple of days up at Camp Tahkodah and I was always looking for ways to do that again.

We stayed in tough via facebook and a text message conversation from time to time.  We had loose plans to do lunch when he came back to Arkansas in a couple of months. 

However, it is going to be a little while more before we can goof off together.  Sadly, Trey died in a car accident yesterday and went home early, as they say.  There has been a great outpouring of love for him and his family.  On facebook and other parts of the blogosphere. 

Trey lived in Colorado, was married and has recently had a son named Grayer.  If you can spare a second, just pray for them, God’s love and for someone like Trey to bless your life as well. 

Here is a list of links from friend of his who are much more qualified to speak for him than I am.  UPF.

    Thanks Coleman. You spoke the truth… it only took a few seconds to meet Trey and form a bond, but once you knew him, you were hooked for life.
